I was just looking for versions of this song (a Sufi love lyric, really directed to God, by the mediaeval Turkish bard Yunus Emre) and this video gave me rather more than I expected:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GN4qywPwVk

The singers are from all over the world (though the Syrian and Iraqi performers were filmed in Turkey). Their pronunciation is sometimes a bit weird but they all nail the tune, and the African woman's finish is spectacular.

I've seen similarly constructed videos organized from Turkey before. I think the very first video like this was African-American, and on Vimeo, but I forget what the song was.

Seems to me this ought to work for one of the longer British ballads (Lord Bateman, say). Anybody tried?

There is this one that has been around for several years:

From Playing For Change Stand By Me (there are several free-standing songs from that film if you search YouTube.) Also is Sitting On the Dock of the Bay.

Right, "Stand By Me" was what I was thinking of.

The longer Child ballads should work well that way. Like the bit in "Clerk Saunders" where the seven brothers all wonder in turn whether or not they're going to kill him, or (like Lord Bateman) ballads where the focus shifts bwtween several different characters.

Riddle me this: What do buskers and lefty folkies have in common?

Both are…Playing For Change

This is one is kind of along the same lines - British musicians wanting to make connections visited the refugee camp in Calais and collaborated on a project with musicians in the camp. I bought the disk, it's wonderful.

The Calais Sessions became an online fundraiser for the refugee camp, and I'm sure good platform for the musicians involved. I don't know if anyone received payment, or it was the joy of making music.
